I took off the electric fan on my 1997 TJ Wrangler and installed a Flex Fan, it works great at all temperatures.

How many times are you going to post the exact same thing in this thread? This is probably the fourth or fifth at least. And not sure any of them are helpful since you are just bragging about owning a product that nobody can buy today. Sort of like all your posts about J arms.

Your 4.0 did not come stock with an electric fan. If you had one it was from a previous owner.

Wow, I thought this site was for talking to each other. I joined at Jerry Bransford suggestion. I value Jerrys advice, but in this case after reading the post about talking too much about a fan that was hard to find I thought was out of line! So now I don't know what this site is for, so please withdraw my name from this group, sorry Jerry, I misunderstood.

Bragging about an OEM product that is no longer available? Nope, just showing the other readers that the product did exist. Isn't that part of what this forum is for?
I like the "J" arms.
Stick around John, don't let a few sourer you on this forum...

The Explorer fan takes different sized bolts than the stock fan. I think M10x1.0 is what you'll need.

Thanks cubecompmtdx

Just got in from the garage.

After Golen stroker install been hitting CEL high temps at slow trail speeds and extended stops at traffic lights in 80deg+ weather.

coolant levels good, just did burping, clutch fan only spins 1/2 turn when cold--pressure testing system. lost 2psi after 10 minutes, slight pet cock leak...

New radiator was put in but cap wouldn't hold pressure...replaced it.

ran engine for 1 hour again in 85 deg garage, temp gauge sat between 2 and 1 on gauge the whole time (1800 RPM's)

could hear fan start for the higher temps.

SO, debating sending blade and clutch fan back, BUT would hate to be on trail and have to shut down every 20 minutes for a cool off....

Thanks again, T

I just put a flex fan on my 1997 TJ it comes complete with bolts and spacer. It's a bit of a challenge to line it all up, but it works like a dream, more air at slower speeds and less horsepower at high speeds. Temperature never varies from center on gage, flat land or mountains. Hope this helps, and thanks Knucklehead I appreciate your comment you're right, I was a little, or maybe a lot , hasty, I work on that, I was out of line. johnmd80

fan upgrade for older 4.0 Wrangler

i read most of the thread and it got me looking for a solution for the older fan clutch.

Here is the solution for the bolt up clutch fan.

i have a 2005 LJ where i'm building a stroker motor for. i wanted to make sure cooling was taken care of but the donor block was a 97 meaning the 97 water pump. I didnt want to go electric because of the hit and miss so many people have had.

2005 fan is 18"
1993 mustang 10 blade fan is 18" (Spectra Premium CF15001)

97 TJ Hayden fan clutch 2737
93 Mustang Hayden fan clutch 2733

Hayden fan clutch 2733 is the HD fan clutch for the Mustang. it has the same dimensions as the 97 HD clutch (2737) other than the overall height. The difference is only 0.25" but is the same OAH as the 2005 fan clutch. I spoke with Hayden and they said if the dimensions match the fan should work on my project.

hope this helps.... not sure if it was covered already.
